With my son, we traveled down one of the four split trails. We had such a great time! I don't know if the trail colors mean anything about their level of difficulty, but some trails run right by the water and others don't. Anyway you walk, it's a nice scenic view, and you will meet fellow hikers along the way.

Really pretty woods, fairly dense, and nice trails that are well-marked. Easy to get in 2-3 miles, and up to 5-6 if you don’t mind running the same path twice. In suburban area so kids, dogs aplenty when I was there early Saturday morning. I did these woods as a “long run” in the very beginning of trail half-marathon training after a slight ankle roll earlier in the week because its a trail but was not super technical. A safe option and A great day overall.

Hiked the Green Trail. It was scenic and quiet. Trail markers were well placed besides a visible trail. There is a steep path on the right side of a loop that may prove to be challenging going up or down but is generally manageable.

Not bad, but nothing special. You do get to spend some time by the water here, and it's easy without being too boring. Nice short little loop.

Good Hike. Remember the bug spray in the summer when you are near the river!

Took our boys hiking, a little difficult with a stroller but thankfully we had a great off road stroller! Was a great little hike. Water was nice to walk along beside.

Nothing wrong with the trails themselves, they are marked well. It's just really really boring and it's not far away enough from roads to still hear noise pollution from cars. If you like an easy clear cut walk with not much going on, then this is for you. It was definitely more of a walk than a hike. The only interesting part about the trails was the river, and that was just ok too.

Nice, well kept trail
Not too difficult, has a few inclines, but they are short.
All in all, I would recommend this trail for anyone interested in scenery and a light workout.

This is a very nice trail that runs along a stream for a good portion. Fairly flat the entire time expect for a short steep hill that will take you to the stream. Completed in about an hour with plenty of stops to admire the view. Would definitely recommend and will be doing this trail again soon.

pretty, tranquil. opportunities for off trail activities and other trails to branch off to. quary has repelling potential.

Great trail, some parts are paved, mostly gravel. Very easy. Plenty of wildlife lots of butterflies, we saw a family of deer, a blue tailed skink, and a small snake. Bathrooms are nice and well kept.
